Nectar of Devotion, Chapter 12,
One should learn how to cry for the Lord. One should learn this small technique, he should be very eager and actually cry to become engaged in some particular type of service, This is called 'laulyam' and such tears are the price for the highest perfection. If one develops this 'laulyam', or excessive eagerness for meeting and serving the Lord in a particular way, that is the price to enter into the kingdom of God. — The Nectar of Devotion, Page 83.
